Europe prices

Europe is famously home to some of the most expensive cities on earth for the traveler, but there are also some fantastic bargains as well. Generally speaking, the farther north you go the more expensive things get, though there are a few exceptions. The former East also remains comparitively cheap though the gap seems to close more each year.

Seasons also obviously play a huge role in travel costs for Europe. Most of the continent is jammed with holiday-makers during July and August, though some larger cities in the south actually empty out a bit and are good bargains if you can put up with the sweltering heat. Unfortunately, some cities, especially in the north, have such challenging weather during the off season that there's no point in even trying.
